Patrick's 12th Birthday

Holy Crap we have a teenager in the house!

Patrick turned 12 on the 21st of May and is now officially a teenager. Since he is such a drummer I made him a drum cake. I think he liked it. I didn't get any complaints and it was a spice cake which is his favorite. There wasn't any left!


We had a party with some family and friends. We cooked hamburgers and hot dogs, hung out, played football, and generally just enjoyed one another company.

What would a party be without presents? Patrick made out pretty well.
He got an iPod shuffle.

Some shell and pooka shell necklaces from Grandma.

His best friend John gave him a iTunes gift card.

Patrick is a big skateboarder. He likes to go to the skate park. We gave him some wrist, knee and elbow pads so that hopefully he makes it to 13 without breaking a bone!

Patrick has spent time watching YouTube videos learning how to solve a Rubik's cube. Now he has one that he can play with. He has the thing all the time and is really driving me crazy with all his clicking. :)

It was a great party and Patrick had a good day. He is happy to be able to go to Young Mens on Tuesday night. I think he is most happy about the fact that he no longer has to go to sharing time in Primary.
Happy Birthday Patrick!!!

You don't have a teenager--you have a "tween." He's such a good looking kid! Love the cake...
